Catholics employed rising

According to figures released by the Equality Commission shows that Catholic employment is in an upward trend:

“The overall rate of catholics being employed in Ulster currently stands at 39.5%. However, the Equality Commission said this was set to improve with new figures showing that 45% of people appointed to new jobs in 2001 were Catholic.”

Update: Belfast Telegraph welcomes the figures as a sign of positive change. And previous figures from 1997 on CAIN.
